Many Aston Villa fans have reacted to comments made by Jack Grealish on his teammate Anwar El Ghazi.
With football at standstill due to the recent pandemic, Villa’s top flight status hangs in the balance, sitting 19th place in the Premier League table.
Having gained promotion via the Championship play-off final last season with a 2-1 win over Derby County, the Claret and Blue will be hoping they can remain in England’s top footballing league.
That victory against the Rams at Wembley saw winger El Ghazi find the back of the net, and he has continued his good form this season, contributing with four goals and four assists in 25 appearances.
The Dutch winger turned his loan deal at Villa Park into a permanent one following the play-off final success last summer, and club captain and teammate Grealish has now heaped heavy praise on the 25-year-old former Ajax and Lille man.
“When he gets the ball on the edge of the box in training or shooting drills, his finishing ability is scary, it’s unbelievable,” the Villa skipper said (via Birmingham Mail).
Reacting to the comments via Twitter account @astonforza, fans gave an opinion on the winger…

He needs to be Moore decisive and direct when attacking

Definitely but 3 things don’t help.
1) Without Grealish in Midfield three we can’t get ball forward to attackers and wingers.
2) Grealish,El Ghazi, Trezeguet all want to come inside so we have no width.
3) We haven’t got a good holding midfield enforcer so often ending playing 2!

I rate him. Confidence player though. When we were on a good run at the end of last season he was influential. We’ve seen glimpses this season like at United away, the run for Grealish’s goal. When the morales down though, he goes missing.

he seems to have some kind of mental block in his head on most match days, frustrating.

In training, he doesn’t have thousands of fans lambasting his every touch

We love him for the playoff goal

No Milan Baros running to the corner flag antics with El Ghazi. If it started to work out who knows.
